Ideal place to stay if you are going to support Wales. We have stayed here twice and both times have no complaint. Plenty of choice for breakfast. The staff are friendly and efficient. Rooms are clean and well serviced.

Just returned from a 2 night stay here and I have to say for a "budget" hotel it was far superior to many hotels of a higher standard that I have stayed in....Staff were friendly, helpful and polite with nothing seeming too much trouble, even the security guard bid you a "good night" upon heading up to bed which was lovely!...Location is brilliant for both the Motorpoint Arena (just around the corner) and the city centre which is just a 5 minute stroll & even though there is no on-site parking, there is an NCP car park just a short walk for £6 a day so didnt consider it an issue for me. Didnt manage to make breakfast so i cant comment on the standard of food, but the bed was soooo comfy I took full advantage of a kid-free weekend & slept in!! :-) The room was spotlessly clean, and modern in design with a good shower and i cant wait to book my next stay here and would highly recommend this hotel to everyone! Thanks Ibis!! :-)

Room Tip: i stayed in room 228 and it was fab..overlooks the road outside which is busy but didnt notice any n...

Overall the Ibis was fine - served our need for 2 nights in the City. Very good location in terms of closeness to the city centre - however we had a TINY room and it backed on to the train tracks.

Also, our bathroom door wouldn't shut properly, we didn't have a shower mat. Hotel is very noisy - expected as so close to town centre on a Sat night but being right next to the train tracks didn't help.

A little overpriced for what the room was - definitely no space to move around.

Dear 'Anon474'. Thanks for your feedback. I am glad that the hotel served your purpose. But I was sorry to learn that the shower door did not shut properly and that there was no bath mat in your room. Thank you for bringing this to my attention - I will speak to the relevant departments in person. Kind Regards, Jacek

We visit Cardiff frequently, and stay here quite often. Yet whenever we stay we are always asked if we have stayed at the Ibis before. In todays age of technology, online booking etc why is it staff are unable to welcome a guest back? It may seem like a small issue however it does reassure the guest that their patronage is recognised. It's a great little hotel, very well sited for all things in the city. The bar area isn't great but it is a utility area servicing as reception area/bar/eating area and this is also reflected in the price you pay for a room. The rooms are comfortable enough for what we want which is usually out and about on the town! The staff are really nice and on the rare occasion when I have experienced a problem this has always been very quickly rectified without fuss. The whole place is always clean, smells nice and on the rare occasions we have eaten breakfast it's always been a very good breakfast, buffet style, help yourself as much as you want! Despite the proximity to the railway track, never get disturbed by this, I always get a good nights sleep (well OK fire alarm went off on 1 occasion!!) it's just across the road from the Motorpoint Area and never experienced problems from that either. This is really a favourite place to stay but the attention to detail in recognising frequent/repeat guests is a little irritating!

Room Tip: Higher rooms seem to be quieter especially if you sleep with the window open!
